The best London weight loss treatments for summer 2019
If you need to slim fast here are the best contouring treatments in London
SculpSure at the Cadogan Clinic, from £500 per treatment
Where: 120 Sloane Street, Chelsea, London, SW1X 9BW
When your diet and workout regime are not quite enough –there’s SculpSure. A non-invasive body contouring system for the reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen, inner thigh, arms and hips. The 25-minute procedure uses a targeted laser that destroys up to 24% of treated fat cells until they are too damaged to survive and are dispelled by the body. The results are seen in about 6 weeks and the good news is that there’s no downtime, a couple of sessions are usually sufficient and the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed so will never come back.
Emsculpt™ at Dr. Preema London Clinic, from £750
Where: 4 Chandos Street, Marylebone, London, W1G 9DH
This is like exercising but on fast forward. One thirty-minute treatment is the equivalent to 20,000 crunches or squats, thanks to an electromagnetic field that makes the deep core muscles contract in a way you could never do by exercise alone. The USP is that it’s a non-surgical contouring system that works on reducing fat at the same time as increasing muscle mass and definition – so is great if you’ve hit that exercise plateau and need a little extra help. It looks a little like a vacuum cleaner when strapped on, and you feel the muscles contracting, with next day achiness associated with any heavy-going workout session. Individual cases may vary, but you can expect to lose on average around 4 cm from your waist, almost 20% of abdominal fat while increasing muscle mass by 16%.
Body Ballancer at Karidis Clinic, from £65 for 30 minutes
Where: The Hospital of St. John & St. Elizabeth, Third Floor, 60 Grove End Road, London, NW8 9NH
This pressotherapy massage technique, also known as ‘compression therapy’, is an advanced form of lymphatic drainage massage, which is beneficial both aesthetically and for optimum wellness (it aids the immune system and helps to expel toxins). You wear a sci-fi looking compression garment – think medical-esq salopettes, that gently inflate and deflate to a comfortable pressure, working on dispelling water retention, puffiness and excess fluid. You can target the waist, hips, bottom and legs or upper abdomen arms and back and results vary, but can be up to 2cms of weight loss in as little as two weeks, along with noticeably smoother, less dimpled skin.
